Mike Musto checks out some ratty muscle cars, for our entertainment.

Three years ago, Nick and I met Mike Musto, a man with enough personality to fill all of Middlesex and Mercer County and a big fan of old-school muscle cars (my sort of thing). His new show, House of Muscle, is a show that’s absolutely worth watching. In this latest episode, he ends up in a little rural part of Alabama and shows us all some muscle car clones that aren’t perfect, but are a blast to drive and aren’t trailer queens. These are cars that are run hard, put away wet, and maintained the way the owners want, not how the collectors demand. It’s always great to see folks with old cars like these actually run them around and use them. While I own a car that’s far newer (my beat up Lincoln, which currently isn’t running thanks to an engine problem), it isn’t perfect either–and this man from Alabama deserves my respect.
